Kyler was born December 23, 2016, in Fort Benning, Georgia to Jade and Briani Smith. Kyler has one sister Khloe Smith. He cherished every moment in life. He brought immense joy to all who knew him, with his love for playing video games, basketball as well as other sports, and the thrill of riding his motorcycle. He would play as long and as hard as he could. 

His eyes lit up at the sight of strawberry ice cream and strawberry iced doughnuts, as well as crumbled cookies, which always brought a smile to his face.

Kyler adored his cousins, Landon Farrier, and Jadavian Farrier dearly and spent countless times playing video games daily with them as well as many summers. His favorite game was Fortnite. Kyler loved his best buddy, Kingston. Whether they were playing together or simply enjoying each other's company, Kyler and Kingston shared a bond that brought immense happiness to Kyler's life. Above all, Kyler held a special place in his heart for his Pawpaw and spent as much time with him as possible until he passed away in 2021.

When Kyler grew up, he dreamed of becoming a soldier like his daddy, reflecting admiration for his father's bravery and profession. Kyler had an immense love for all his family and friends. 

His laughter and playful spirit will be deeply missed by all.
